PostHeaderIcon Tracy Morgan Bought a Bugatti Veyron and it Was Crashed an Hour Later

Comedian Tracy Morgan was featured in yet another news-grabbing car accident. Fortunately, this accident was nowhere near as serious as his last one. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same thing for Morgan’s just-purchased Bugatti Veyron, which bore the brunt of the accident when it got clipped by a Honda CR-V in the busy streets of New York. Morgan managed to get out from the passenger side of the car, but not after he stood up from his seat and read the driver the riot act. The comedian’s fury was understandable since he had just come from actually purchasing the Veyron from Manhattan Motorcars. If we were in his shoes, we’d be pissed, too.

PostHeaderIcon Maybe The 2020 Toyota Supra Isn’t Compatible With the Nurburgring After All

Toyota may want to hold off on building its own version of the Nurburgring in Japan because it appears that the Supra doesn’t agree with the actual Nurburgring. The Japanese automaker’s new prized sports car crashed at the ‘Ring in a testing session that occurred during Industry Pool. The crash occurred at the
Nordschleife’s Exmühle section, and available photos show that it was significant enough to cause the Supra’s bumper to get torn off completely. Details are limited on how the crash actually occurred, though considering where it occurred, the driver may have misjudged the racing line through this area, leading to a bit of understeer that ultimately led to the driver losing control of the sports car. Either way, the crashed Supra looks like it’s in need of a lot of repairs.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the Owner of a Tesla Model S Walk Away Unscathed From a Horrendous Accident

Outside of all the negative publicity from Tesla drivers being idiots and blaming Tesla for their own stupidity, and the recent onslaught of Tesla fires lately, it’s hard to remember that cars like the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X are some of the safest cars on the road. But, the truth is that they are. Their crash test ratings are amazing, and the Model X takes a miracle to flip over. Be this as it may, you never really know how safe a car is until it’s put to the test in the real world. This video that you’re about to watch proves exactly that.

This video took place inside the Barcelona tunnel in Spain just last week, and it shows a grey station wagon drift out of its lane, clip a black compact car, then head on the Tesla Model S. As far as to why the wagon drifted from its lane, we’re completely unsure, but we’ve found out that the driver of the station wagon was fatally injured. That in itself makes it all the more amazing that the driver of the Model S, as seen just a couple of seconds after the crash, walks away practically unscathed. The crash was so bad that the station wagon’s engine was even thrown from the car.

Check out the video below to and prepare yourself for a rather scary-looking accident.

PostHeaderIcon Crash Testing a Koenigsegg is Expensive, So The Company Has a Novel Solution

Every automaker that builds road-going cars has to comply with the same safety standards in every market their vehicles are sold in. That means that even small companies like Koenigsegg must meet the same standards as mass-production companies like Chevrolet, Ford, Mercedes, and the like. Well, for these massive companies, crashing 10 $30,000 dollar cars isn’t a big deal – it’s relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things, and it doesn’t hurt inventory numbers in any way, shape or form. Most companies even allocate a certain number of vehicles to crash testing. For Koenigsegg, though, the company only builds a handful of cars and the process is nowhere near as simple as it is for Chevy to build a Cruze of Mercedes to build an A-Class – everything is custom, everything is expensive, and crash testing even one model could be a very expensive, even disrupting ordeal to the company. But, the solution is really a simple one – Koenigsegg crash tests the same car over and over again.

Okay, so it’s not exactly that simple, but you get the idea – the company crash tests a specific car, then rebuilds it for another run. In doing this many, many times, the company is able to comply with the same crash-testing rules as companies that produce in mass. All in all, the company need just one carbon fiber monocoque to do all crash testing for a new model. As Christian von Koenigsegg put it, “We destroy the bodywork on the outside, subframes, crash members and so on, but not the most integral and most expensive part of the car.” “This is very unusual,” he continued. “If you take a large car manufacturer, it’s much cheaper for them to take a car out of the production line, crash it, throw it away, and take another one. In our case, it’s completely different. It’s cheaper to rebuild and repair, smashing the same car.”

Apex:One actually got access to some footage from within the bowels of Koenigsegg that shows off the various crash tests the company performed to the Regera. If you’re not completely stunned just by seeing a car of this caliber destroyed – it really is almost tear-inducing – the maybe you’ll be stunned by the realization of just how strong the car’s carbon-fiber body work is. I dare you to go out and pound on your Ford Explorer’s door or hood with a hammer and see how that works out for you. Anyway, go ahead and check out the video below and let us know what you think. It’s pretty amazing, to say the least.

PostHeaderIcon Model S lights up in Shanghai. Tesla said that investigations are already started.

Since 2013 there have been at least 14 instances of Tesla cars catching fire, the majority occurring after a crash. On April 21, late Sunday evening Shanghai local time, users of Weibo, the Chinese social media app equivalent to Twitter, widely shared a video showing a Tesla Model S catching fire spontaneously.
We look forward to hearing what Tesla’s investigation results are.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Just Wrapped a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Around a Tree

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is a Huracan dialed up to 11. It’s lighter, more powerful, and more nimble than the standard model but all the extra performance doesn’t blend well with an over-enthusiastic driver. This particular fellow wanted to show-off the launch control feature on his Huracan Performante but, instead, managed to prove how safe the Huracan is after crashing side-on into a tree and a wall.

Reporting on yet another crash involving a supercar may seem a bit daft especially since they seem to happen with an awkward regularity. Once every two or three weeks we hear about someone who overstepped it on the public roads and ends up with a bent exotic car. It barely ever happens during a track day, but you can decide if that means anything or not. This time, however, we’ve got another Huracan Performante that’s in the gutter after its owner banged it up pretty severely while attempting to leave a car meet in London as if he knew what he was doing. It’s safe to assume he didn’t quite know what he was doing.

PostHeaderIcon Volvo Raises the Bar for Safety, Limits All New Cars from 2020 Onward to 112 MPH

At a time where automakers are feeding their cars with supplements to give them more power and higher top speeds, there is this Swedish angel who cares about peoples safety instead of competing in the rat-race to see who builds a faster car. Volvo recently announced that it will be limiting the top speed on all of its models to 112 mph from the 2021 model year. Will this affect Volvo’s sales?

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Goes Ice Fishing, Burns Up, Doesn’t Melt Ice

Currently, there’s the shell of Tesla Model X that burned to a crisp sitting on a frozen lake in Vermont. That’s a sentence I never imagined I’d write. The situation certainly is odd. It raises a lot of questions. What sparked the fire? Why didn’t it melt through the ice? What was the car doing on the lake in the first place?

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Crashes and Burns; Reportedly Non-Functioning Door Handles Fatally Trap the Driver Inside

A Tesla Model S collided with a tree on Sunday in Davie, Florida. The car was soon engulfed in flames and, because the automatic door handles appear to have seized, the driver was trapped in his car and was killed. Reports have emerged telling that, like in the case of other crashed Teslas, the wrecked Model S caught fire again this morning with the source being traced back to the battery.

It’s unclear at the moment how the accident happened, but witnesses at the scene told press that they couldn’t get the driver out because the automatically deploying door handles remained stuck in place. What’s more, an officer that happened to be in the vicinity of Flamingo Road where the incident took place was also unable to break the car’s window and evacuate the driver. This could be a harrowing precedent for Tesla.

PostHeaderIcon Jesus Told a Man to Drive His Ferrari Into a Lake and He Was Happy to Oblige

A 48-year-old man drove his Ferrari into the Lake Worth Inlet in Palm Beach County, Florida claims that he did it because Jesus told him to. The man, identified as James A. Mucciaccio Jr., made headlines last month when he drove what looked like aFerrari 360 Modena into the water after a conversation with a police officer regarding an issue with Mucciaccio allegedly driving over the speed limit. When the police officer asked to his license, Mucciaccio got into the car, reversed it off the dock, then accelerated forward into the inlet, sending the Ferrari into the water. Apparently, the Lord Almighty himself was behind all of it, or so Mucciaccio claims.

PostHeaderIcon Florida-Based Tuner Crashes Man’s Audi S4, Refuses to Pay for Repairs

All day every day we have to agree with forms online that are too long to be worth reading. Much in the same way, we often fail to read contracts in real life, but this could have costly consequences. Take a man who brought his Audi S4 to a body shop for repairs only for an employee to wreck it and then refuse to pay for the damages.

Apparently, the client had signed a contract that exempted the shop from having to pay for any damages that occurred while the car was in their care. However, the owner has since sought legal help as he aims to somehow get the body shop to pay for the gross negligence.

PostHeaderIcon Watching This IIHS Simulation of a T-Bone Crash Will Inadvertently Exercise Your Sphincter Muscle

We have seen many bone-jarring videos of red-light runners getting wrecked – literally wrecked. But some people still don’t realize what a bad idea it is to jump a signal. For those folks, and for others as a humble reminder, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) posted a video demonstrating how dangerous it can be to break the rules.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang Tries to Race a Mercedes-AMG A45 and Ends Up Regretting It: Video

A Ford Mustang and a Mercedes A45 AMG were involved in a huge crash in South Korea after both cars figured into an ill-advised race that quickly got out of hand. A video of the race taken from inside the Ford Mustang shows the muscle car blatantly disregarding traffic laws in the country. According to the description, both the ‘Stang and the A45 AMG were reportedly running at speeds of up to 110 mph on roads with a 37-mph speed limit. The reckless driving ultimately came back to bite both cars in the bee-hind, resulting in the Mustang getting spun around and ending up on the sidewalk. There are no reports of injuries, so that’s about the only good thing to come out of this idiotic episode.

PostHeaderIcon 43-Year-Old Crashes a McLaren Senna Just Hours After Delivery

When you name your latest supercar after one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers to ever grace a racetrack, there are a few assumptions to be made. Firstly, the car in question will be blisteringly, outrageously fast, and secondly, it’ll be quite the handful behind the wheel. Unfortunately for one McLaren Senna customer, these were two lessons learned the hard way.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning

This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?

PostHeaderIcon Fifty-One Ferraris Prematurely Meet Their Maker After Super Typhoon Jebi Lays Waste To Japan

A Ferrari dealership located on Rokko Island in Japan suffered the wrath of Typhoon Jebi, causing damages to 51 of 53 new and used Ferrari models at the dealership. According to local media, some of the destroyed Ferraris had already been purchased, and we’re just waiting to be delivered. Dealership employees tried to block the floods caused by the typhoon with tarps and sandbags. Unfortunately, none of those preventive measures worked.

PostHeaderIcon Sending Your Tesla Model S Airborne is Probably Not The Best Idea in The World

A 46-year-old man from Ontario, Canada was charged with dangerous driving after sending his 2016 Tesla Model S airborne as a result of driving too fast for his own good. Local CCTV footage, as well as dashcam videos, captured the Model S doing its best Fast and the Furious impersonation, traveling through the air for almost 100 feet before gravity took hold of it and sent it back down to earth. The Model S may have stuck its landing, but the driver was unable to regain control of the car, which managed to skid across a highway, hopped a curb, careened into a school parking lot, and hit a tree.
